'This illuminating work of history is much more than the story of a dynasty in decline.  Edward Crankshaw's penetrating account of the critical century which ended with revolution shows how Tsarist Russia had within it the seeds not only of the catastrophe of 1917, but also of many aspects of modern Russia which we are apt to think of as peculiar to the communist state.  Much of the Russian character and many of the Russian ways of doing things which we now find particularly perplexing or alarming had their counterpart in the Tsarist Empire.'
